A new normal has been imposed in our work life. A new way of living in which people can be fully connected with their colleagues while working remotely. This has given many the chance to fulfill their dream of working from the beach.
In our newest installment of Work From Paradise, we’ll take a quick look at the best homes for those who want to get lost in a beach paradise, while still being fully connected to the world. Why work from home when you can work from paradise?
We have always fantasized about being able to disconnect from the busy city life and go live on the beach. Well… that fantasy can now become a reality. The increased acceptance of remote working and better connectivity has allowed people to work from anywhere they choose. This is your chance to work from a tropical paradise.
For this episode of Work from Paradise we chose to show the most beautiful housing options for you to live near some of the most luxurious and beautiful beaches in the South Pacific, while staying connected and up to date with the modern world. In these areas, each day you can be surrounded by impressive local flora and fauna, and even be able to see natural wonders such as the Bahía Ballena Whale’s Tale, and the Sierra Costera mountain ridge.
Here are some of the extraordinary options that Costa Rica Sotheby’s International Realty has for you:
Uvita Ballena Retreat is a retreat offering boutique lodging for those who seek nourishment for the body, mind and spirit. Located strategically minutes away from Uvita river, supermarkets, stores, restaurants, and recreational places like Uvita waterfall and even the well- known National Park Bahia Ballena, this is the prime haven for those seeking to work during the day, and relax during the night.
Villa de Ensueño is an ideal refugee from an otherwise high-speed life. Your day can start with a super fresh organic orange juice, a Costa Rican style breakfast with “gallo pinto”, and then a walk with the dogs around the organic gardens to collect some veggies for lunch. Each day can successfully mix a working schedule with relaxing moments that will turn the ordinary into extraordinary.
When it comes to the beach lifestyle, few homes get stunning views such as this one. As soon as your last meeting ends, you can look over to the famous Whale’s Tail from the mountains between Uvita and Dominical. Just minutes away from the coast, up in the mountains, this home has an ongoing breeze to cool it naturally, allowing the best of both worlds, the beach at your fingertips and the freshness of the mountains.
Perched on the mountains above the Dominical beaches, this incredibly modern mansion is a true Castle in the Sky. This home has incredible views of the famous Whale’s Tail, and expansive views to the Pacific and along the Sierra Costera mountain ridge, the mountains of Costa Rica that are closest to the coast, allowing for a quick drive to the beach from a very comfortable and cool ridge high above the coastline.
This irreplaceable, unique property is located a short drive from the Dominicalito beach, and within a small community. There are only eight units in the premier section of the valley, and this property is arguably the crown jewel of the area.
The main building site has a beautiful, forest-lined approach that opens to an expansive cleared area that is suitable for the construction of a special estate home, pool, parking, and grounds.
The site boasts views directly towards the iconic “one tree island” which is the central, focal point of the vista.
This stunning piece of land boasts the amazing and unencumbered view of the ocean on a breathtaking bluff that connects with a 4,000+ meter terrace, specially designed for building the ultimate boutique hotel in the heart of Costa Ballena. The property is conveniently located between the two biggest towns on the coast, Dominical to the North and Uvita to its South.
This property, while feeling completely isolated, is just off the main road from Puerto Jiménez to the mainland. Land access is therefore easy and smooth, and access by water is great as it allows ease of access anywhere in the Golfo Dulce, Golfito, and the Osa Peninsula, or even down to the waves of the Pavones area just a boat ride away. This is the ultimate hideout for those craving for privacy, yet want to be connected to many services quickly.
Casa Jungua, or “House of Jungle and Water”, is a beautiful, environmentally friendly, off the grid Balinese-Style Farm House located in Cabo Matapalo on the Osa Peninsula.
It is built purely from greenheart woods and has an extremely low impact on the environment. Exclusively solar powered yet featuring washer / dryer, refrigerator / freezer / swimming pool and other amenities one would expect from a “wired” home. Privacy and off-the-grid living in a gorgeous natural setting create a truly unique home in Casa Jungua.
Oxygen Natural Reserve, Sierpe, is a land responsible for preserving oxygen for the planet. Its vastness and unparalleled flora and fauna allow visitors to fall in love with the coexistence of many different species.
It’s beautiful water access channels resemble a giant pool, through which you can navigate easily by boat. This virgin land is perfect for those who want an immediate connection with the surrounding nature.
The off-the-grid lodge and field station consist of almost 1,000m2 of buildings under roof, including a field station/lodge with six dormitories for a total of 28 beds and three shared bathrooms. Six private cabins sleep 24 people, and a staff house sleeps eight, with three bathrooms. There are, of course, research areas, an office, presentation areas, and vast common areas for socializing, etc. A large kitchen in the main building is built to prepare food for large groups. Solar electricity and water heating (renovated in 2019) keep the operation going.
Throughout the property there are miles of trails for walking, research, conservation awareness, etc, and even two tree platforms with a zip line to be at canopy height and used for observation of flora and fauna in the treetops.
Our journey through the best hidden spots for beach loving workers has come to an end. These amazing properties successfully accomplish the ultimate dream of living off-grid, while working remotely. This is your opportunity to turn that dream into a reality.
